Irma Ortiz Macon
Irma Ortiz Macon went to be with the Lord on November 10, 2020, at the age of 80. She was born to Carlos and Ernestina (Valadez) Ortiz in San Antonio, Texas.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Liz, and brother, Charles. She is survived by her loving husband, Ron Macon, and her children, Michael Macon, Georgina Tobin, Tina Capello, Dawn Macon-Vogt and Chris Macon. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Ashley Cassillas, Sterling and Steele Tobin, Arron and Scout Capello, Jason, Michael and Alex Macon, as well as Kylie McIntosh and Lillie and Rhys Vogt.
Irma worked at a restaurant named Jim’s in San Antonio in her younger years, and Ron Macon would come in there for months just trying to crack jokes with her but she would never give in. Finally, Irma gave in and it was love ever since. They later got married and moved into a house in San Antonio, but later she made sure they moved to the country, and so Ron, Irma, and the kids moved to Bandera, Texas.
Mimi absolutely adored being in the country raising her animals and children; it was some of her fondest memories. Once everyone got a little older, they moved to a little piece of the Hill Country in Boerne, Texas, where Irma spent the rest of her years surrounded by her loved ones.
Irma spent her life being a housewife to her children and grandchildren. She also loved animals with her whole heart. She enjoyed taking her children to rodeos or hauling them to livestock shows. In her spare time she enjoyed making jewelry for herself and others. It really showed how creative she was. Irma was also fascinated by family genealogy. She knew historical family information that others would have never known.
Irma’s most favorite thing to do was being with her grandchildren, whether it was hanging out with them in her home or hauling them in a car full of laughs and joy. In her later years, she fell in love with the Brahman breed, which she started caring for and going to shows with her grandchildren. She became every child's biggest cheerleader in and out of the show ring even if they weren't her family.
Irma has been described by those who knew her as an excellent baker, a bright beam of joy and devoted friend. Irma was a wonderful woman with a creative spirit and a generous heart. She did everything with such grace and poise and was a friend and supporter to all who knew her. She will be greatly missed.
